DFBI motion
 
Hi,

Can any one help in the following?

I am modeling a water turbine with 4 blades for boat propulsion. I applied superposing rotation motion to individual regions of these blades so that the entire model is successfully rotating. Now, I have to make the blades flexible (to enable them rotating about themselves depending on the hydrodynamic forces being applied on the blades) while rotating about the axis of turbine. How can I apply DFBI motion for individual blades along with superposing rotation?

Thanks in advance.
